Stay at home with the cats... or act on stage. My lifelong dilemma.

Anyone for Theatre?

Stagecoach Malta Theatre Arts School is to hold a once-in-a-lifetime musical theatre workshop to be held at St James Cavalier in July. Pity I can't be there as I will be on stage at the time - I'm very upset to be missing it. But if you're into theatre, you really should do it!

The adult workshop (16 years and over) will be headed by foreign tutors. The classes will take place in the evenings of the 10th and the 14th July and a full day on Saturday 15th July, culminating in a showcase performance. The participants will be divided into two groups according to experience and training. This means that anyone who is interested in gaining some truly valid music theatre experience will find the workshop extremely challenging whether a beginner or a seasoned actor.

Tutors include Gavin Mole who (under his professional name of Tom Wakeley) was musical director of ‘Oliver’, ‘Aspects of Love’ and ‘Miss Saigon’, amongst others. He has been a vocal coach at RADA for many years and specialises in musical theatre for children. He is currently working on the hit musicalChicago at the Adelphi Theatre in London’s West End. Denise Mulholland’s concert and oratorio appearances included performances at the Festival Hall and the Royal Albert Hall. She has worked as company principal for all major UK opera companies. Denise has given a number of vocal workshops in Malta and performed at the Manoel Theatre and St James Cavalier.

There will also be a children’s workshop, which will be open to children between six and 15 years of age and will take place between the 10th and 14th July from 10 to 17.00 hrs. This five-day course will see the students through a musical production from start to finish, which they will then perform in the theatre. Mr Mole and Ms Mullholland will be joined by dancer / choreographer Emma Loftus.

A special class for children between four and six years of age will also take place between the 10th and 14th July from 09.15 to 13.00 hours, headed by moi, Emma Loftus, and Beverly Farrugia. They too will have their performance for parents and friends
